I offer a wide diversity of music styles and options for students. I myself sing and play classical, pop, rock, jazz and other styles of music. I also house an extensive library of sheet music and apps I provide copies from. My primary instruments are piano and voice. I love sharing the joy of music with all ages. There is nothing like seeing a student master of piece they’ve been working on or perform for the first time! I love the integrative nature of teaching and performance and relationship-building. Welcome to a range of goals from just joy to performing with other musicians!

Naveena G. says, "Mr. Cook has been a God sent to our family. Our son is 8years old and he used to take lessons from a local guitar store here in Pooler, Georgia . I wasn't very happy with what was being taught so I posted on lessons.com for a guitar instructor. Mr. Cook was the first one to respond to us and we decided to give him a try. We were super impressed with his approach to teaching, his patience and gentleness. He is very encouraging and motivates him greatly. You can tell that he is passionate about teaching and developing the student. Our son has not only improved in the last couple of months with him, he actually enjoys taking lessons and looks forward to class every week. I'm so grateful to Mr. Cook and to lessons.com for helping me find the BEST guitar instructor ever!! My only regret is that I cannot give him 100 stars!!!" Read more

How It WorksLearn at Your Pace and Your Level... As far as lesson plans I like to build one around each individual student's wants and needs. I like to say that "you are pilot and I am the navigator". Learning material, books and such are chosen after assessing the direction the student wants to go musically. I keep a log of the lessons so I can check on the progress. Many things that might work for me do not work for the student and vice versa. By me keeping an open mind and adapting to this I feel progress is made at a much more rapid pace. I am well versed in the use of written music, music theory, scales [regular and exotics], chord chart...

Your Guitar Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do guitar lessons cost near me?

Guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per lesson, depending on if they last 30 minutes or up to 1 hour. If it's a one-on-one lesson, it'll cost around $45 to $70 hourly. Learning guitar in a group is cheaper at $25 to $35 per session.

If you're taking lessons every month, it adds up to $170 to $315 with the typical prepaid discount.

Are guitar lessons worth it?

Guitar lessons are worth it since only a professional teacher giving you live feedback can guide you to learn faster. A good instructor helps you understand your mistakes and prevents you from developing bad habits.

Learning guitar by yourself takes a lot longer and won't prepare you as well to play in public.

At what age should I start guitar lessons?

Children can start guitar lessons from the ages of 6 to 10, or when they can comfortably hold the guitar and press the strings. Adults can start guitar lessons at any age, provided they practice regularly and patiently.

How many guitar lessons do I need?

The number of guitar lessons you need varies according to your goal and your practice routine. For many people, it typically takes about 2 to 6 months to play a simple tune. Mastering the guitar like a professional can take anywhere from 4 to 10 years.

What do you learn in guitar lessons?

In most guitar lessons, you can expect to learn:

  • How to correctly position your fingers to play chords
  • How to tune your guitar
  • How to play various scales
  • New techniques for plucking and strumming
  • How to read sheet music.

Are online guitar lessons good?

Online guitar lessons cost $35 to $55 per hour and are good for getting personal instruction from skilled teachers worldwide. Take advantage of flexible scheduling and immediate feedback while learning new guitar-playing styles. Plus, you can easily record lessons to review their advice later.

How do I find the best guitar lessons near me?

In order to find the best guitar lessons for you, look through nearby teachers listed here on the Lessons website. You can also ask for teachers at local music stores or community colleges.

Before you hire a guitar teacher, make sure to:

  • Check out prices from at least 3 different teachers.
  • Read their reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Ask for a list of their current or previous students that you can talk to.
  • Talk to other parents about the teacher's reputation with their children.
  • Make sure you get a written agreement and schedule before your first lesson.
  • Avoid making a big payment upfront for a month of lessons until you're comfortable with the teacher.

What questions do I ask when choosing a guitar teacher?

To find the right guitar teacher, you can ask them these questions:

  • What kind of music degree do you have?
  • How many years of experience do you have in teaching guitar?
  • Can I have a free trial lesson to see if your teaching style helps me?
  • What is the average age of your students?
  • Will you assign me finger exercises as homework?
  • How often should I practice between lessons?
  • What textbooks do I need, and where can I buy used ones?
  • How many guitar-playing styles are you an expert in?
  • Can you modify your teaching style to suit my learning abilities?
  • What should I bring to our lessons, and how long is each one?
  • Can I get a copy of our schedule, agreement, and payment terms?
  • What is your policy if I have to cancel a class due to an emergency?
  • Can I choose some of my favorite songs to learn on the guitar?

"I am a 13-year-old who has been a part of Miss Kim’s piano class for six years. There are many things that I have learned from Miss Kim, but among the most inspiring is her attitude to constantly stay positive and keep working towards a goal. Miss Kim has taught me this lesson over and over in her teaching and it has truly inspired me as a student to keep working for her with a positive attitude. There is another great part of Miss Kim’s style which involves showing the student as opposed to telling them. This is made certainly evident by her constant playing for the students to listen, instead of telling them what to do with no example. She is truly a masterful teacher who labors hard and joyfully for her students."
